Artists To Discuss Business Training at April Forum
The Arts Council of Windham County (ACWC) is sponsoring a forum, “Business Training for Artists,” on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 from 7-8:30pm at the Moore Free Library (23 West Street) in Newfane, VT.
This year, the ACWC provided scholarship funds to nine Windham County artists accepted into the two-day Vermont Arts Council (VAC) professional development workshop for artists, “Breaking into Business,” held in February and March.
Windham County artists Michael Billingsley, Ronald Demers, Sheryl Fletcher, T Namaya, Rolf Parker-Houghton, Stephen Proctor, Brendan Taaffe, Elin Waagen, and Ruth Wplk were selected for the workshops. Most will be available at the Newfane forum to share what they learned about business and marketing planning specifically tailored to the needs of artists. Also attending will be participants from last year’s training who will share their perspective from applying the training.
The panel discussion is intended for artists of all disciplines (visual, performing, media, literary, crafts and traditional). Those attending will get and share ideas on how to achieve greater success in their current or dreamed of arts business. The session will also identify needs for additional business training and services for area artists. There is no charge for the forum.
Since 1975, the Arts Council of Windham County has worked to strengthen the environment for artists and arts organizations in Windham County.
